About Us

The Heads

A warm welcome from the Heads of Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep & Nursery.

2019 marks the launch of a new leadership structure at Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep & Nursery. Mrs Jennie Phillips, Head of Monmouth School Girls’ Prep and Mr Neil Shaw, Head of Monmouth School Boys’ Prep are now joint Heads and will be supported by Mr Matt Wren, Senior Deputy Head, who will have responsibility for the day-to-day running of the school.  This new structure enables us to share educational expertise and resources, widening the opportunities available to all our children across our Pre-Prep and Prep schools.

We have created a nurturing environment at Agincourt, where children are immersed in a culture that fosters a love of learning, a desire to improve and courage to try new and exciting things without fear of failure. These characteristics are coupled with a strong emphasis on values such as respect, friendship, resilience and resourcefulness.  We build upon this strong foundation as our children move on with confidence to the girls’ and boys’ prep schools within the Haberdashers’ Monmouth family.

Blessed with beautiful, enticing grounds, our pupils have endless opportunities for learning through discovery, forest school activities and having fun. The conservation area, pond and vegetable garden encourage children to explore habitats and plant growth, as well as taking responsibility for their own surroundings. We have an excellent array of play equipment to encourage athletic and imaginative play. We cultivate a caring, family-centred feel where children enjoy their time at school and parents feel involved and supported in their child’s learning.

A variety of age-appropriate and stimulating clubs are available at lunchtime or after school. These allow the children to try different activities and pursue new interests and with such a diverse range of choices, there is an option to suit each child.

As a school community, we are committed to giving our children as many opportunities as possible to ignite their passions.  Our aim is to support your children as they grow into articulate, confident, kind young people, equipped with the skills they will need to face the challenges that lie ahead in a changing world.

Our website will provide you with a snapshot of life here, but we encourage you to visit us and see first-hand the difference Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep & Nursery can make as you plan these crucial first steps in your child’s education.
